Donald Trump continues to prove to his detractors that he knows how to run a country. Proof to that is the job surge that happened last February. This is the biggest job gains seen in years, according to news reports.
Almost everyone thought that US President Donald Trump’s goal in creating more jobs for Americans is just a dream. Well, it looks like dreams do become a reality. Recent development shows that the Trump administration should give itself a pat on the back for a job well done.
Donald Trump Administration Adds 298,000 Jobs
Fox News reports that last February, US businesses added 298,000 jobs. According to the source, it’s the biggest gain the country has seen in three years. In a report carried out by ADP, it shows that the positive growth in jobs was already evident last January.
ADP Research Institute’s Vice President Ahu Yildirmaz said, “February proved to be an incredibly strong month for employment.” Moreover, Yildirmaz said that the job increase is a trend they have not seen in years. Based on ADP’s employment report, the jobs generated were from the following industries: construction, mining, and manufacturing.

Meanwhile, The Washington Times attributes the job surge to the POTUS’ tax reforms. The latter report noted that the former Celebrity Apprentice host promised historic tax cuts to happen this year.
The source noted that due to this, employers are responding to the reforms in a positive manner: more jobs for the American people. Moreover, the outlet noted that the business mogul took note of the numbers and tweeted that the number of jobs added “was much more than expected.”

During the election campaign period, the hotel magnate cited “the need for tax cuts.” Trump reasoned that the US corporate taxes are “too high” compared to Europe which only has an average of about 25 percent.
Meanwhile, the initial report cited that 66,000 jobs were from the construction industry which is at its best showing in 11 years. On the other hand, the mining industry who had shed jobs for the past years are adding 8,000 positions while the manufacturing industry added 32,000 jobs in February.
